cops, not fully formed ideas
I did report it, because we have insurance that covers our bikes but requires a police report number.
I really wish there were a way to tell the cops not to harass all the folks they see on bikes, and that I'd be happy to trade for our spare bike (if the person just needs a bike) or pay (if the person just needs money). I don't really want to involve the cops at all tbh but I /would/ like to try to get my bike back if I can.
<sigh> It's all very complicated.

On another note tho holy shit my meds have helped a TON
I didn't become an incoherently sobbing, stressed out mess. I was able to calmly handle the whole situation, call my husband to let him know I'd need a pickup, call to find out how to report it, take photos of the scene.... and generally not have it totally derail my whole self.
Definitely still sad/frustrated/upset about it, esp b/c I made some choices that led to it, but I'm handling it ok and I love that.
